The funky styling may disguise it, but the fact of the matter is the Renault Captur is now four years old, and in need of a nip and tuck. Happily, Renault has given the B-segment crossover just that, although as far as facelifts are concerned, this is a fairly minor one.
At the front of the car, the grille has been mildly redesigned with chrome bars flanking the massive diamond logo. These are flanked by optional LED “Pure Vision” headlights, while C-shaped LED daytime running lights sit at the corners of the bumper; this lighting signature is repeated in the new tail lights with LED light guides. Finishing off the look are new skid plates front and rear for a more rugged aesthetic.
The Captur has also been given two new paint colours, Atacama Orange and Ocean Blue, as well as a new Platinum Grey roof colour for the two-tone colour option. Buyers can also choose between six interior personalisation packs in Ivory, Ocean Blue, Caramel, Red, Satin Chrome and Patina Chrome, as well as five exterior packs in Ivory, Oceam Blue, Cappuccino, Red and Atacama Orange.
A fixed panoramic glass roof has been added for the third trim level and above, along with two new 17-inch and two new 18-inch alloy wheel options for the first three variants. There’s no interior photo to show you, but given that Renault has not enumerated any changes to the cabin, it has likely remained unchanged.
No changes are expected under the bonnet, either – the current car is powered by a choice of three engines, including a 90 hp/135 Nm 898 cc TCe 90 turbo three-cylinder petrol, a 116 hp/190 Nm 1.2 litre TCe 120 turbo four-pot petrol (like we get over here) and a 90 hp/220 Nm 1.5 litre dCi 90 four-pot turbodiesel. Transmission options include a five-speed manual and a six-speed Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) gearbox.
